Thanks a ton for the info, once again! I have been loving these things run out of my 10 year-old Pioneer receiver. I was worried about a loss of soundstage coming from the Q701 but the LCD-2 have this awesome, pinpoint soundstage that makes orchestral recordings feel close, intimate, and exciting (something the Q701 had difficulty with). For now, I'm simply going to enjoy these fantastically made cans. This is all great to know for the future though!
